Lunch & Learn Lecture Series: A Walk With the Curators: Mary Anne Redding and Kelsey Wagner

Event date: 
Wednesday, July 11, 2018 - 12:00pm - 1:30pm

The arts tell stories in many ways and from many perspectives, providing individual aesthetic expression that begins with the artist and is carried through each viewer – a seductive and eloquent articulation of place, of time, and of identity – a harbinger of visual culture. Appalachian State University alumna and Turchin Center Curatorial Assistant Kelsey Wagner will discuss the history of human-elephant relations and the anthropology of conservation across Asia and Africa in relation to her exhibit The Elephantine in the Anthropocene. Turchin Center Curator Mary Anne Redding will provide her curatorial insights into working on this summer’s international biennial, Art from Down Under: Australia to New Zealand. Immediately following the lecture, Mary Anne and Kelsey will lead participants on a walking tour of the international exhibitions.
